“Most people don't notice what's going on around them. That's my principal message to writers: for God's sake, keep your eyes open.” ~ William S. Burroughs
OffBeat Dubai is a book series of visual cultural observations of Dubai with a focus on the lives lived outside the ordinary. It is designed to be a collectors’ book. Each volume revolves around a certain theme and looks at the unique and unexpected relationships arising out of globalisation as natural by-products. This is observed through the advantages of an outsider’s point of view, with the aim of giving a sense of recognition and familiarity, but at the same time striving to challenge the status quo. OffBeat Dubai is a dialogue between neo-globalism and localism, high and low brow, the East and the West and between social and religious conventions internally and externally - presented in a cross-cultural parallel context with the aim to show Dubai as raw and authentic.
“When you cut into the present, the future leaks out” ~ William S. Burroughs
